A master’s degree is awarded after completion of a postgraduate program. These degrees prepare the student to enter their chosen field, prepped to become leaders of others who are working with them. Often providing a level of specialization, the degree also prepares the graduate to take on tasks that would otherwise be unavailable. 

What is an MA in Curating? This program typically provides students with the knowledge and skills they need to curate a variety of different types of art or design objects. Students will be exposed to objects that may belong to public or private collections. Some programs will take a global perspective on the role of the curator while others might focus more on a theoretical and historical approach. Nearly all programs will take a close look at how the arts influences communities and cultures, key developments in art and the issues that are most pertinent to a curatorial environment.

After completing this program, graduates should have the critical skills necessary to work with contemporary and/or historic collections. Many students will enjoy associating with professionals and experts in the field of curation, as well as a number of contemporary artists, and may have access to special collections in the school or related libraries.

The costs of participating in this type of program can vary a great deal. This is particularly true for schools that are established across international borders. To get specific tuition information, prospective students should contact their preferred schools.

Graduates may look for positions with art, cultural or heritage organizations, galleries and museums, exhibition groups, media, marketing and advertising agencies, and community groups or education. Individuals who graduate with this master’s degree may choose to become curators of a public museum or accept a position researching historic pieces of work. Other job opportunities might include the creation of displays and exhibits or writing press releases, dealing with budgeting or developing marketing strategies.

The professional communication of culture, art, architecture, and design is essential. Education, effective staging, and communication in the area of arts and design have an important role to play, in both the public and private sectors, reflecting the shifts currently taking place in cultural production and the creative and cultural industries. In this context, the program in Curatorial Studies will enable the student to work successfully as a curator and/or as an art and culture educator across the entire spectrum of institutional and non-institutional contexts, in the public and private sectors, and in the for-profit and not-for-profit domains. -
